Tai Chi / Tai Ji

China tài jí
Japan taikyoku
Tai Chi / Tai Ji Wall Scroll

太極 is the shortened title for Tai Chi Chuan or Tai Ji Quan that as sometimes used in Western countries. Basically just removing the last character which means fist. I don't recommend this two-character selection because it's not really a word without the third character in Japanese and Chinese.

Jin Ji Du Li

China jīn jī dú lì
Japan kin kei doku ritsu
Jin Ji Du Li Wall Scroll

"Jin Ji Du Li," means "golden rooster stands on one leg."

This also called "crane stance" in English. 金雞獨立 is used in wushu, karate and other forms of martial arts.

This can be pronounced, "kinkei dokuritsu" in Japanese but it's rarely a title used in Japanese.

Tai Chi Chuan Dao
Tai Ji Quan Dao

China tài jí quán dào
Tai Chi Chuan Dao / Tai Ji Quan Dao Wall Scroll

太極拳道 is the common Tai Chi Chuan title with "Dao" (the Way) added to the end.

If you're not sure, I suggest the shorter titles such as "Tai Chi Chuan," or just "Tai Chi."

Tai Chi Chuan / Tai Ji Quan

China tài jí quán
Japan tai kyoku ken
Tai Chi Chuan / Tai Ji Quan Wall Scroll

太極拳 is the famous Taoist meditation and martial art exercise. The direct translation of these characters would be something like "grand ultimate fist" but that does not quite hit the mark for what this title really means.

An early-morning walk through any city in China near a park or open area will yield a view of Chinese people practicing this ancient technique.

The typical scene is an old man of no less than 80 years on this earth, with a wispy white beard and perhaps a sword in one hand. He makes slow moves that are impossibly smooth. He is steady-footed, and always in balance. For him, time is meaningless and proper form and technique is far more important than speed.

For the younger generation, faster moves may look impressive and seem smooth to the casual observer. But far more discipline and mental strength is needed to create perfectly smooth moves in virtual slow motion.

Note: There are two ways to Romanize these Chinese characters as seen in the title above. The pronunciation and actual characters are the same in Chinese. If you really used English sounds/words to pronounce this, it would be something like "tie jee chew-on" (just make the "chew-on" as one flowing syllable).

Shorin Ji Ryu

Shaolin Temple Style
Japan shou rin ji ryuu
Shorin Ji Ryu Wall Scroll

少林寺流 is the Japanese martial arts title "Shorin-ji-ryu."

Though the first part of the title comes from the Shaolin temple of China. In Japan, this refers to the Okinawa school of karate.

Note: Sometimes this title is written without the "ji" or "temple" Kanji.

Tai Chi Wing Chun Kung Fu

China tài jí yǒng chūn gōng fu
Tai Chi Wing Chun Kung Fu Wall Scroll

太極詠春功夫 is the title Tai Chi Wing Chun Kung Fu. Please note that it can be romanized a variety of ways such as:
Tai Chi Ving Tsun Kung Fu
Tai Qi Yong Chun Gong Fu
Taai Gik Wing Ceon Gung Fu

Be sure this is the right title for what you are looking for before you order.

Five Elements Tai Chi Fist

China wǔ xíng tài jí quán
Japan go gyou tai kyoku ken
Five Elements Tai Chi Fist Wall Scroll

五行太極拳 is a certain school or style of Tai Chi (Taiji). The characters literally mean "Five Elements Tai Chi Fist."

In Taiwan, it would be Romanized as "Wu Hsing Tai Chi Chuan" - see the standard Mandarin method above in the gray box (used in mainland China and the official Romanization used by the Library of Congress).

The last three characters are sometimes translated as "Grand Ultimate Fist," so the whole thing can be "Five Elements Grand Ultimate Fist" if you wish.

I have not confirmed the use of this title in Korean but if it is used, it's probably only by martial arts enthusiasts. The pronunciation is correct as shown above for Korean.

Tai Chi Ball

China tài jí qiú
Japan tai kyoku kyuu
Tai Chi Ball Wall Scroll

太極球 is the title "Tai Chi Ball."

This may refer to any number of variations of exercise balls, some with yin-yang themes, others strictly for taichi/taiji or qigong exercises.

Ba Ji Quan

China bā jí quán
Japan hakkyo ku ken
Ba Ji Quan Wall Scroll

八極拳 is "Ba Ji Quan" or "Eight Extremes Fist."

Some also translate this as "Eight Extremities Fist," though I don't feel that's accurate.

八極拳 (Bājíquán) is a Chinese martial art that features explosive, short-range power and is famous for its elbow strikes. It originated in the Hebei Province in Northern China but spread to Taiwan and other places.

The full title is 開門八極拳 (Kāimén Bājíquán), which means Open-Door Bajiquan.

You may also see this romanized as "BaJiQuan," "Pa Chi Ch`üan," or "Pa Chi Chuan."

In Japan, this is known as, "Hakkyokuken."

Shingitai / Shin Gi Tai

China xīn jì tǐ
Japan shin gi tai
Shingitai / Shin Gi Tai Wall Scroll

心技体 is the Japanese title "shin gi tai" or "shingitai."

This can refer to the three elements of Sumo wrestlers or martial artists, "heart-technique-physique."

Here is what each character represents:

心 shin) mind, heart and spirit.

技 (gi) skill, knowledge and experience.

体 (ti) body and physical effort.

These characters have the same meanings in Chinese, though this title is used much more often in Japanese.

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
